NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said he doesn't think the Winnipeg Jets' attendance issues are a red flag for the team's viability.

"I don't view this as a crisis," said Bettman, who spoke alongside deputy commissioner Bill Daly on Tuesday before the Jets hosted the St. Louis Blues. "But I do believe, as with any team in any market, there needs to be collaboration between community and the fan base and the club.

"And I believe, ultimately, it will be here."
